    Europe is going to be next to investigate and possibly sue, no word on Japan. Sony may not be in the gaming business for long if this keeps up.

    Sony deserves to be in major trouble for this. But I feel sorry for the Japanese they have enough to deal with without a major company like Sony going down.

    The good news is that CC info was not stolen.

    If these lawsuits go international Sony might as well kiss their gaming division goodbye.

    That would be a disaster to the gaming industry.

    I doubt it. Like I said in one of my earlier posts:

    When Atari bowed out of the console race, Sony took their place. When Sega bowed out of the console race, Microsoft took their place.

    I will bet my left nut that someone will take Sony's place.

    I'm thinking I should just go buy some popcorn and watch Sony Computer Entertainment go down in flames.

    Except it would still be a major hit. It doesn't matter if they are replaced, it will not happen day 0, even Microsoft had problems to get a fanbase in the start, and the new company will have to be really strong to make all the developers accept them. Not only that, but the initial public resistence.

    Either way, I don't care, as I don't think Sony will lose their gaming company because of this.

    Good news if so and if they did have such measures installed I might be able to look at a Sony network engineer and maintain a straight face.

    Bad news- I was just the word "solution" away from winning at buzzword bingo.

    If a hacker group hacks gbatemp and gather all private data of its users, would you guys sue Costello?

    Do we have our credit cards here?
    Is Costello the owner of an enormous corporation and repeatedly claims that it's impossible for someone to get that information?
    Are there still some people who would sue him?

    Yep.

    I'd make him a nice cup of tea with an empire biscuit and lovely lemon icing on top. And then I'd hunt the bastards down!
